Im studying EP273 and 275 and would love to have tabs for more than the three chords shown. Does anyone know if they are in another lesson? I thought I had seen them somewhere else?
Tried nutting it out but its hard work.
Tried to transpose but without success, need a lesson on that too!
Anyway thanks in advance.

Those are great lessons, I especially love the EP275, it’s amazing to me what great tunes you can come up with using the CAGED system!
If I can make any suggestion for you, when learning CAGED, rather than relying on tabs, try to really understand what it is about by practicing playing and visualizing it on the fretboard. In reality, all the shapes are the SAME FOR EVERY chord, they are just positioned differently on the fretboard. In other words, you don’t need tabs for each chord, in fact, you don’t need tabs at all once you grasp it – and I think that’s the whole point of using the CAGED system 🙂
For example, you could just start by learning to find the E-shape position for every chord. You can find their position by knowing where the ROOT notes are. Then you could study how the next shape connects to that and so on. For my learning purposes, I have made a sample diagram of the CAGED system for a few chords and if you notice, the patterns are EXACTLY the SAME for all the chords, they’re just shifted depending on where the root notes are. The black dots indicate root notes. See if that helps you seeing what I’m talking about 🙂

Thanks Jola for the worksheet. I’m starting to put it together.
